Norwegian Delights


I thought nothing could top the Icelandic Delights but now I don't know! I'm really enjoying these Norwegian names. Like with the previous Delights, they were taken from baptism records from 1780-1880.

I've been concentrating on the Delight series for a while now (I get obsessive over things...) so I promise there will be a break and I'll change gears for a bit!
